this show rocks, and while not an entire 5 star performance straight through, the clarence sax effort w/ the band gets 5 star -- he adds hugely. the iko, memphis blues, birdsong (a monster) and promised land are high energy... so too is some of set 2 w/ him. was about to pass by this show and glad i chose to listen to this healy source.

A man and a woman come together as strangers..
John Fogerty might be one of the best ever to play with the Bob & Jerry.
Yet on the other hand Clarence Clemons is easily the worst guest outside of Joan Baez.
Think I am wrong compare Branford's sit-ins with the band to Clarence.
Anyway, just my two cents you might be really into what Clarence does with the BOSS.
I would agree with those that say Brent was the highlight of the Dead set.
Also agree you must check out the CCR set on You-tube

A Grateful day in the Sun, lots of bands, lots of fun
This was a very memorable day to most of us who were there. I was next to the soundboard, and it sounded great. There were AIDS quilts strung up high all around the sides of the stage and stadium each patch of each quilt for each dead AIDS sufferer. Tracy Chapman was a sweet treat. I was eager to hear this new on the scene guitarist Joe Satriani that Jerry had been giving thumbs up to. then John...It was the 2nd time I saw John Fogerty (the 1st being Newport '69 at Devonshire Downs with Hendrix, Joplin, Ike & Tina and a pile of others). I was happy for Forgerty because he was coming back with "Centerfield", which was about his Phoenix rise after Fantasy had their boot on his neck for so long. And appro po, it was where baseball games were played. What a surprise it was to see Jerry and Bobby backing him up...sweeeet! Fogerty is a major dude in our late 60s culture, and is often overlooked but his songs reach down into each of us. I remember some comedianne, don't remember her name. And then the Boyz came on. Trippin, I was like, "Wooofuckinghoooo!" And they did their thing and did not let us down. I remember Jerry smiling alot that day in the sun. Bobby was in cutoffs if I remember correctly, and Brent's fingers on the keys were lifting him up out of his seat. These are my subjective memories. I'll let the music stand on it's own, and leave most of technical reviewing to others. But come on, Stuck Inside has a blazing jam, Birdsong goes off, Fire is classic, Blow Away was heart melting, The Other One was just fine, all with Clarence sounding as good as ever, who could complain? As always, everyone's mileage varies, because at live events, all that matters is each person's experience. 300+ GD/JGB shows and I don't regret going to any of them, even though some were pretty shaky at sometimes especially in the last few years. ThankyouGodfortakingmethere!

Pretty neat bunch of tunes, the greatest story was a little jilted but it seemed like after that the fun didn't stop. Brent songs really good here, loving the harmonies on bird song and the extra instrumentation. Like someone else said,not epic but def a nice listen. It's got me smilin smilin smilin
I also like the taste of the other one at the end of truckin beginning of rhythm devils,and then they give it to us later on. Thank you boyz

CCR meet the dead
This show was awesome. the Dead of course rocked, but the highlight to me was being what would be 15 row(if there were rows)center for Jerry, bobby, and John Fogherty as they pounded out classic CCR hit after hit. Jerry seemed very happy, especially as he left rainbow leads to Rock and Roll Girl, centerfield,Midnight Special, you know CCR and Fogherty stuff. Very thankful to have been there and went in early to see this. I think Tracy chapman, los lobos, joe satriani and some others played this Aids Benefit show, warming up for GD. I have a great VHS of this show that came from a San Francisco TV station. Cool. Oh...nobody should be ashamed to like this show or give it 5 stars for Brents songs. We didnt know what we had and now he's gone. Brent was under appreciated. Raise your hand if you would do anything to hear Brent and jerry rock to Blow away now.

If you go to Youtube.com and enter "Fogerty, Garcia,Weir" you will be more than pleasantly surprised with what you will find from this day in history in Oakland, Ca.----Enjoy!!!!!!!

It's always sunny in Oakland...
What makes a great show? The music or the time's shared with the one's your with... Both actually. What a great day this show was. After having rode my bicycle down from Vancouver Canada to the Bay Area and hooking up with some cool hipsters this was a full day of music. We were also treated to the East Bay Soul that is the Tower of Power WOW! Long live Rocco Prestia. Dead wise, real good vibes from them this day, Blow Away and the energy of Hell In a Bucket stand out as well as the sound quality of this recording.

Try the Cap Center 3/16/90 for a killer Blow Away.
November 16, 2006 Subject:
Good, solid show. But I beleieve that you guys need to check out 7/16/90 for a tight killer Blow Away....Jer is simply amazing!
June 6, 2006 Subject:
I define this as a "fun show". To say the best of 89 as a grateful dead related site indicates is a stretch by a mile. Fun but not epic

Best ever Blow Away?
I was there for the version that's on Dozin' at the Knick, but this is a photo phinish for the best ever BA.

Overlooked, but worth getting
Its a fairly short show (at least for '89), but considering they shared the bill with numerous others at this benefit concert, it is respectable. First set is fun with the mid-set Iko. Clarence Clemmons (in one of several '89 appearences) joins in for several songs. The Bucket segues into a surprise Fire on the Mt. The Fire on the Mt is short but has a great sound that I find really appealing. The Blow Away is a stand out with a great Brent rap at the end, Perhaps this is the most tight version they performed where the band was together and so was he (even the "Dozin at the Knick" from 3/26/90 version isnt nearly as tight). Some might groan, but I'm gonna give this one 5 stars just for this song.
The rest of the second set is fun and spirited. Go ahead and get this show, it just might surprise you.
